Objective: Project Results: Design a child-friendly user interface, that allows a hearing-impaired Programming of the software was successfully done on Windows Mobile patient to run and record the results of a self test hearing diagnostic on a 5.0 operating system for PDAs. PDA at his or her leisure Using Microsoft’s Visual Studio 2008’s Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK for Project Goals Pocket PC, the team is using a cross between Visual Basic and C++. Develop user friendly GUI Enable running of GUI on PDA The software has successfully been programmed to provide the patients Software should have Tutorial session with a tutorial session where they can listen to the vowel sounds and hit the Automatic saving of test results for doctor’s review repeat button as many times as they like until they are familiar with the Synchronization between PDA and Bluetooth headset sound The software is able to generate an 8X8 confusion matrix. This shows how many times a vowel was presented to the patient, and and which word they selected, whether correct or incorrect. The Matrix is not displayed to Project Overview: the patient until the testing is complete. Hearing impaired patients need a self test system which they can use to Software automatically saves test results for doctors evaluation test their ability to recognize the 11 vowels in American English The proposed self test system should allow users to have a tutorial session where it will randomly read out words with embedded vowels giving the user a chance to hear the correct pronunciation before they attempt to take the actual test These words will be displayed prior to the test on the PDA screen allowing the user to associate the words they see to how they are read For younger patients the software will have some animation characters that will appear when they are able to choose the correct word that the software reads out. This will provide a positive re-enforcement to the child and making the learning process enjoyable. The software will save all test results on the PDA for doctor’s review. Project Conclusions/Outcomes: The team has successfully managed to create the first set of vowels that have been tested on a computer simulated PDA.
